    Wonderful dance school

    07-02-2016 by Pippa

    I joined Spreagadh Na Rince almost 2 years ago, this was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Throughout my (short) life time I've been involved in many different sports and sporting teams and I have never felt as supported as I do at Spreagadh Na Rince. The family atmosphere gives students the encouragement and comfort that they need to achieve their goals. I have seen my dancing and confidence improve immensely since I joined, I highly recommend this school.

    Fantastic Teachers and supportive environment

    06-01-2016 by CH

    Having danced with Spreagadh na Rince since the school started I have experienced the dedication the teachers have to their students. They have a passion for Irish dancing which they love to share. The whole community including the teachers, students and parents are so supportive of each other from the beginners to the senior dancers, from those who compete at World championship level to those that dance for fun and fitness. Irish dancing is a lot of fun for children and adults and I can highly recommend anyone interested contacting the school to get started.

    Great Irish Dance School

    06-01-2016 by Kim Ross

    Spreagadh is a wonderful Irish dance school. My son and daughter have been going for the last few years. The teachers are great and the community and inclusive spirit of the seniors, juniors and all the parents is wonderful. I would thoroughly recommend the school

    Encouraging the Dance, inspiring the dancer

    My daughter has been involved with Spreagadh for 18 months now and we could not be happier. Her needs as an individual are met, while being supported by beautiful team members and the most amazing teacher. She has gained amazing confidence about herself and her capabilities, excelling at competition and in displays. Spreagadh na Rince, under the guidance of Sarah, has given my daughter amazing opportunities for growth and development - impacting every aspect of her daily life. I cannot recommend Spreagadh enough. We are blessed.

    Fabulous trainers great team spirit

    30-11-2017 by Robyn Sierla

    My 10 yo daughter fell into the 'don't like sport' category until we found Emeralds. Now at 11 she is keen to spend six hours a week training for the competitive stream. This is sport disguised as fun but also builds strength, fitness, flexibility, commitment and team spirit. Emeralds has a lovely culture too with highly committed, creative and competent teachers providing lots of encouragement.

    It's an OLYMPIC SPORT!

    06-04-2016 by Amie Thompson

    If you're curious to see the sport at its top level in action, watch it at the upcoming Olympic Games in RIO! Australia will be sending a team. Sydney Emeralds is one of the longest lasting clubs in Australia and continues to thrive and produce smiling athletes! It was my first club which gave me my solid base of training. I am now on the national team and will NEVER forget all the memorable lessons I learnt from the emeralds!

    Fabulous team sport

    05-04-2016 by Michelle

    An amazing team sport that ticks all the boxes. My daughter loves the water and has so much fun. The club encourage teamwork amongst the girls, stamina and fitness. For the smaller ones watching the bigger girls perform is something to aspire to. Great sport for fitness and self esteem. Sydney emerald are a welcoming club to be part of. Highly recommend.

    Great team sport

    05-04-2016 by Dasn Astles

    This is just such a great sport which combines a mixture of elements. Teamwork. Movement and music

    Be part of an amazing and friendly community!

    05-04-2016 by Coach Susy

    We have recently built a big base of beginners and pre-competitive groups with lots of enthusiastic and lovely girls between the ages of 5-8, 8-12 and above 12. The girls love performing in a group and they enjoy being part of the team. Apart from that they learn how to build confidence and dignity which are very important as well. This sport doesn't only provide with consistent exercise but as a team sport also teaches them respect and how to develop relationships. I noticed that not only the girls but the parents (actually the whole family) also become part of the community and enjoy a nice BBQ on the beach together at Christmas time for instance. I love teaching at this club not because it has a sound strategy for how to develop as a club but most importantly because we discuss with every girl individually about their goals and expectations and provide with personal development path if they want to be competitive for example. And we are just having so much fun all the time this is an amazing group of people, the girls, parents and my coach fellows all together.

    All rounded Sport

    05-12-2014 by

    This sport needs strength as well as flexibility. It also helps built team spirit as you train with other's your level as well as creating endless inside jokes and having a great time. I have done for 5 years and if you want to combine music, dance and swimming this is the sport. Come for a trial and recommend it to anyone you think will be interested.

    Wanna try dancing in the water?

    18-11-2014 by

    Do any of you even know what synchronised swimming is? It's time to find out! I've done it for about five years, and so far no sport has has surpassed it in my opinion. If you enjoy either music, swimming or dancing, come and try out! Everybody in the club is tightly-knit and very good friends. I, myself have made many friends, from whom I'm inseparable from. So come, and I'm sure you'll have more fun than you'll imagine!

    What a fantastic and different this sport is!

    18-11-2014 by

    Synchronised swimming is quickly growing in popularity in Australia. It gives girls and women of all ages an opportunity to do something fun and quite artistic, improve and work on their fitness, make friends and lots more.. Even represent Australia at the Olympics if one aspires to take such path. The club supports all, whether one wants to be a recreational swimmer or take it to the elite athlete level. There are a number of enthusiastic, highly qualified and experienced Sydney Emeralds coaches ready for you! So why don't YOU give it a try?

    Awesome Sport! :)

    18-11-2014 by Jun Yi Ong

    My favourite hobbies since young were swimming and dance. Synchronised swimming is the best combination of both the strength of swimming and the elegance of dance. I am glad that I had the opportunity of trying out this sport 8 years ago as an adult and thanks to Sydney Emeralds, I have become addicted to this awesome sport! :)

    Fantastic sport!

    11-11-2014 by Jill Gallagher

    My daughter has been doing synchro for three years now, and absolutely loves it. It is a great combination of dancing and swimming, both of which she also loves. In the time she has been doing it her self-confidence has improved, as well as her fitness and pride in how she conducts herself. I would recommend it to anyone.

    Private cooking lessons

    15-07-2014 by Camilla

    “The first thing we need to do is buy a couple of good knives,” Camilla tells me after I’ve contacted her for some cooking lessons for my daughters, ages 12 and 9. As a fine artist, I should know this, and Camilla—who accompanied me on the knife errand—was right: good tools are fundamental (even though the tools Camilla uses are scarier). Then there’s the important issue of learning how to use them, which Camilla brilliantly, patiently tackled with my excited, novice chefs over the course of three two+-hour, semi-private lessons (there were three girls in the class). An exceptional teacher, Camilla possesses a sunny passion about food, which is downright contagious. I’d hoped my girls would acquire some basic skills in the kitchen—and they weren’t the only ones to benefit: I finally learned about good knives and how to chop properly—and as they made their way through Camilla’s inventive, delicious recipes (at the end of each session, I got to taste what they’d made), it became apparent they were gaining so much more. In addition to being enriched with skills and creative ideas, my girls were empowered by the experience. I know we will look back on Camilla’s cooking classes as a turning point opportunity. Camilla will remain a key point of reference for our family as my young chefs branch out into the wonderful, flavorful world ahead them.
